A comfortable cruiser with speed! The C&C 37/40+ was designed by Robert Ball in Canada, to keep a small family or cruising couple comfortable while underway or at anchor. This one boasts newer, full cruising gear that is tested and functional!

One of only 80 built – MALO has been cruised on the West Coast of the US down to Puerto Vallarta, covering 4,000 nm with only 100 hours under power. She likes light air, points well and sails flat.

She now sits in paradise, ready and waiting for her next owners! These don’t come on the market often, so don’t let this one pass you by.
